Australia's first Minecraft competition comes to Sydney Opera House these school holidays

Players of all ages – all ages – are invited to dig and build whatever they like, from castles and farms to global landmarks, on July 2-3. Strategically timed for the winter school holidays, the festival at Sydney Opera House is part of a bigger program for kids and families, including children’s theatre shows The Wolf and Peter, Justine Clarke’s Look! Look! It’s a Gobbledygook and an accessible performance of Music of the Forest.

Minecraft at the Sydney Opera House will be about bringing fans together to compete, but also to share their love of the best-selling video games of all time. Attendees can come and go between the main competition on stage at the Concert Hall and the activities in the foyer. In addition to the games, Minecraft’s lead creative designer Jens Bergensten and Lydia Winters, brand director of Mojang – the studio behind Minecraft – will be at the House to speak to fans and participate in interactive sessions.
